I got married at 2008. For the first 5 years I was reluctant to take on the responsibilities of motherhood and was more focused on my career. In 2013 I gave more thought about being a mother as I was about to turn 30 years old. And soon I became pregnant, I was happy but was worried about the future. How would I continue my job, how will I raise my kids, etc.?
After 3 weeks I went to the doctor for my first visit and got the medical confirmation of my pregnancy. I still remember the moment when the doctor looked tense and did the ultrasound twice. Then she confirmed that the fetus was developing in my fallopian tube and the tube was about to rupture. If I would have delayed more, my own survival would have been diminished. I was immediately rushed to the Operation Theater and my fallopian tube was removed with the fetus.
I got depressed and cried for days. The doctors assured me that I could still get pregnant with my second fallopian tube. We tried and tried but nothing happened. I got upset as most of my friends were getting pregnant and proudly showing off their baby bumps. It was frustrating to wait for the period date and checking once, twice, thrice with the pregnancy test kit and every time it came up negative. That continued for 1 year. We had no option left other than IVF.
On one weekend while dusting my mini library, I found ‘The Secret’ book lying idle in my bookshelf. Suddenly I realized this book once helped me to get my dream job. I started reading it again along with ‘The Power’. Everything became very clear to me. I had been ungrateful to life though life had given me everything I dreamt of.
I started my gratitude meditation every morning. I gave gratitude to my awesome life. I gave gratitude to sun, air, water and everything around me that contributes towards my existence and my happiness. I gave gratitude when I saw my friend’s baby bump. I got happy and excited on hearing the change that was happening inside her. I felt the pregnancy with her.
Long story short, after 15 days, I was at hospital lying in bed and confirming my pregnancy! A miracle happened and now I am a proud mother of 1 year old who is playing quietly while I am busy in writing this.
Thanks Rhonda! You changed our life completely.
